Everytime I open up Chrome on my Mac laptop (version 10.5.8) I get a message on every new tab that say "adobe flash player was blocked because it is out of date". I keep having to click "Run This Time" - which is getting annoying.
I've tried downloading the update about 3 or 4 times and I'm still getting the warning when I open up an internet browser.
Can anyone help?!
Thanks a lot
Chrome ships with it's own Flash Player version.
Make sure your chrome installation is up to date by doing the following:
Click Chrome > Preferences > Help
Does chrome indicate that it's up to date?
I found a fix here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1445213
"To fix this, type in "chrome:plugins" into the address bar to bring up Chrome prefs.
The list of plugins should say "Flash - Version: 10.3.183.23 Download Critical Security Update".
With this version already installed, click "disable" on the toggle for Flash. It will go grey (inactive).
Try loading youtube..."
I've just tried this, but a Youtube video now says "The Adobe Flash Player is required for video playback" and there's a link underneath.
But this link takes me to the update download page - which I've already tried.
Now that I've tested more youtube videos, I'm seeing the same error. It seems random, in my case, some videos work, some don't. I suppose one other option is to allow out-of-date plugins in Chrome:
But, other ideas are appreciated.
Apple is no longer maintaining OS X 10.5.x with security updates.
If you have an Intel machine, we would recommend that you upgrade to at least OS X 10.6, which continues to be supported by Apple and most browser manufacturers.
Because security updates for the OS are no longer available, most browser vendors have also followed suit:
You can continue to run OS 10.5, but your system will be vulnerable to multiple, publicly-disclosed security issues at the OS, Browser and Flash levels. We highly recommend that you update to the latest available OS version for your hardware.
